A canvas print can be the statement decor your room is missing, yet if the size isn’t right, something will feel off. Too small and your room can look incomplete, too big and the room can feel a little too crowded.
- A great way to help you visualise it in the room is simply by outlining different potential dimensions with painter’s tape, sticky notes or paper. You can then take a step back to take it all in.
- Wall art should take up 60%- 75% of the available wall space, i.e wall space that isn’t covered by furniture. Start by measuring the width and height of your wall and then multiply them by both 0.60 and 0.75. This will give you a range of canvas print sizes that will suit the space.
- When hanging wall art over furniture, such as a bed, a fireplace or a couch, it should be between 2/3 to 3/4 of the width of the furniture. You can do a similar calculation here for measuring the ideal canvas size above your couch for example.
- If you have smaller prints – not to worry either! You can hang them in a smaller area, place them side by side, or you can group them together to create an eye-catching gallery wall- we print based on the uploaded image dimensions to ensure the best quality of print. So, if you print a portrait-oriented photo, it may be best suited for a more narrow wall, whereas a landscape-oriented photo may fit perfectly above the sofa or bed.
Choosing the right images
1) Create a folder on your desktop where you save your favourite images. Be selective and only save the ones you absolutely love. Within this folder create other folders to break down the various types of images. i.e. macro, food, lifestyle, portraits. As you edit your photos, save your favourites to these folders. This will keep them in one organised place so they are easy to find when you are ready to print.
- How much space I needed to fill and how many images.
- Appropriate size for that space.
- The style/colours that would go well in your space.
- How those images would look from across the room.
